Live albums are customarily something that consummates a certain period in the creative life of an artist - a kind of summation, complete with applause. The latest CD from Aga Zaryan, a singer who in the course of three years has grown to become the undeniable star of the Polish jazz vocal stage, is not only a recapitulation of this period; it is something more. This is a superb album recorded by an artist who no longer needs to prove anything to anybody, and each note from her and her group can say to us with assurance: behold the beauty that is Music, and what a beautiful thing Jazz is, in its freedom!

The concert was recorded half a year ago at Warsaw's Palladium, where Aga performed accompanied by a top-notch rhythm section made up of Larry Koonse on guitar, Darryl Munyungo Jackson on percussion, and bassist Darek Oleszkiewicz. All three of these musicians are stars within the American jazz community, associated with that country's West Coast scene. Virtually everything has been written about the artistry of our vocalist at this point, but something one could add here is that in several moments of this recording, we hear her in a setting generally regarded as one which requires the highest level of mastery - singing accompanied by only the bass. Aga Zaryan's strong point is her originality, and this isn't strictly a matter of the characteristic timbre of her voice, the lightness of her phrasing, or the melodic nature of her improvisations. She's not a singer who relies on only the tried and true canon of jazz standards; she also ventures into the realm of soul and r 'n' b (Stevie Wonder's "Visions"), as well as Leonard Cohen ballads ("Suzanne") - the latter being a true hit of hers in terms of interpretation.
